Dog Walking

Personalized Dog Walking Service

Does your dog love a good walk?  You bet they do!

But if you work an 8 to 5 job, then your time for dog walking is somewhat limited (especially in the winter when it is dark before and after work).  You could come home during lunch and take a quick walk with your dog, or if it works (for both of you), you could send your dog to doggy daycare. But if you and your dog would like a more one-on-one approach, our professional dog walking service is for you. Ask Linda Pet Sitting Services offers dog walking in Zionsville, West Carmel, and NW Indy Monday through Friday. A 30-minute mid-day visit, which is everything from companionship, a fresh drink and of course a chance to go outside, costs $18. It’s less expensive than the going rate for a day’s worth of doggy daycare, though it’s admittedly more brief. However it is a more personalized service. Compared to doggy daycare, our service is not about physical stimulation. We offer an active walk to provide a good exercise session appropriate to the dog’s age and condition. This is one-on-one to give each dog what is needed;  exercise, potty break, boredom break and human contact.  Do you know how much dogs LOVE that someone is coming  just to visit them ?

The staff at ALPS isn’t a group of teenagers working a minimum wage job. We are skilled in dog handling and management, and are trained in pet first aid/CPR. Linda and the staff bond with your dog, which, if you have a shy or skittish dog is very important. Linda meets with each owner and their dog(s) to be sure the dog is comfortable with her before ever taking a job.

Service Area: North to 146th Street, South to Kessler Blvd, West to Lafayette Rd  East to College Ave.  In Zionsville, I service as far west as Ford Road.  This includes the subdivisions on both sides of Ford Road.

There is a $1 per mile trip charge added to areas outside these boundries, but still in the service zip codes of 46032,46077,46228,46240,46260,46268,46278,

NEW CLIENT REGISTRATION ($20 one time set up fee)

At this meeting, I will take your dog out for a walk to access leash training.  For our safety, I do not accept larger dogs (over 25 pounds) who are not leash trained and I do not accept aggressive dogs of any size or breed.  

Communication is one of our core values. Our systems and procedures ensure we provide you and your dog with the highest standards of service. I will document detailed information and instructions about your dog’s needs. We will complete your service agreement, get the keys and codes for home entry, and payment.

Our set up fee includes:

60-90 minute In-Home Consultation
